  • ptnP893/2/Fs(3)Apc and control +/Fs(3)Apc larvae or adults were irradiated with 1500 R of X rays for induction of ptnP893/2/ptnP893/2 (+/+ in the control) follicle cell clones through mitotic recombination. Both the Fs(3)Apc mutation and the ptn gene are located on chromosome arm 3L.

  • a All females were tested for a minimum of 14 days.

  • b Offspring/female/day.
